Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame. Hypomineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay.
Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:
- Baby teeth versus adult teeth
- Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns
- Contract-lateral tooth patterns
- Decay clustering
- Post-eruption susceptibility

Located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, we are committed to being the state’s leading dental practice that focuses on holistic, healing-focused dentistry.
